OK Let's clear up a few things: There is no fake shutter sound on any of the NEX cameras.

Do you think this experiment is a confabulation? :

If you read this, he never says if his camera was quieter after cutting the speaker wire. Why even go to the trouble, since the mechanical part of the shutter is still going to make plenty of noise?

Because the physical shutter is loud enough as it is, and having the fake shutter sound on doubles the noise being made for no reason whatsoever. It also sounds very fake like those camera shutter sound effects you'll find on point and shoot cameras (and ironically they can be disabled in the menu).
